Hi! My name is Stephanie and I am a mom of 2 amazing kids. I have been photographing newborns, children and families for the past 8 years!
One question I always get is, "How did you get into photography?" The answer is, "I don't really know." That may seem strange, but it is the truth. I never set out to be a photographer. It kind of just happened. Then people say, "How did you start specializing in newborn photography?" Again, I really don't know. I just fell in love with newborn photography as soon as I did the first one! Newborn photography is like an art and a world of photography all in it's own. A lot of people can pick up a camera and snap a picture, but handling and posing newborns is just something that takes a certain kind of person with an extreme amount of patience. Actually, I can spend hours and hours photographing newborns and I never get tired of it! Sometimes my back may disagree, but overall I enjoy every second of it! I love watching families grow and photographing their special moments year after year.
Most parents call me the baby whisperer! I guess I kind of am. I am just very comfortable handling newborns and have found so many ways of soothing them to sleep! When I go into a store I rarely see home decor.... I find myself thinking, "Can I put a baby in that?" In all seriousness though, I have so many props, hats, headbands, wraps, buckets and backdrops that I don't know where to store them all! It's a good thing I have a big basement!
Besides newborns, I also photograph a lot of sitters, 1st Birthday cake smashes, sport and family portraits! My Christmas Mini Sessions are always a huge hit and start booking in August! Every year I have multiple different themes for both inside and outside set-ups. Please contact me if interested in information on these as they normally sell out very quickly!
Besides Photography, my kids are my absolute world! I have 2 teenagers which can be challenging as every stage of parenting is! They keep me very busy being a taxi to their busy lives and I love every second of it!
